Well, BotW barely had a plot so losing to OoT in that regard isn't surprising. TWW still has the best plot of all the Zelda games IMO.

I really don't get how they did it. It should be the typical boring open world fare I've gone through time and time again, but this is in another league. Everything just comes together so well. Not even Red Dead is tearing me away from this.

The nostalgia is off the charts too. Zelda was the first game I ever played when I was a kid, so them making an entry that's going to end up one of my all time favorites is all kinds of win. Man.
Half a year later and I'm finally done. Almost 100%ed the game (only DLC I didn't finish was master sword trials because it's BS, and the korok seeds because it's also bs; otherwise all shrines, memories, and quests are done). Unfortunately the Switch doesn't keep an accurate count of how many hours you have in a game (it caps at 100 which I hit). I want to say I'm somewhere around 150-180 hrs but I don't know for sure.

Anyway, phenomenal game. Can't wait to see what they do next. I can't remember the last time I 100%ed an open world game. Definitely not this gen. The only game I did everything for this gen is Bloodborne, though that took a quarter of the time this game did.

It doesn't?

Switch counts 210 hours for me, lol.

Through your profile on the upper left? Or do you use some kind of app? I've been reading online that it caps at 100 for others too where I go for the count and I'd love something accurate

Through my profile on the upper left, yeah.

Skyrim also has 175 hours. Dunno where you read that. Might be country-specific or something, but I doubt it.

I honestly can't get into the game.

It's too open world.

I've put over 20 hours in and I'm not feeling it.

Looks great though.

I played this for four days and I dropped it.

It may be called “The Legend of Zelda”, but it’s just not.

That's exactly why I loved it so much.

This is the biggest Hyrule has ever been and there's so much to see and do, so many shrines to finish. The fairy fountains, the easter eggs, korok seeds, it's very much a "make your own fun" kinda game and I'm happy that it is that way.

Combat is also the most complex and challenging it's ever been. It's not Dark Souls level by any means but at least you aren't just waiting for whatever enemy to lower their guard like other Zelda games.

As much as I love Ocarina of Time, this is by far my favorite Zelda game, the only way they could top it, in my eyes, is maybe if they made a Zelda Maker, where you can create your own dungeons kinda like this:



Would it be difficult? Yes. Would it make Nintendo an exorbitant amount of money? Still yes.

Best game in the series imo. People often complained about the lack of traditional dungeons but to me that’s fine when the overworld itself was given the same depth and attention to detail that dungeons usually has.

I mean the shrines were meant to satiate those dungeon-lover's appetites though, they were these fine little bite-sized dungeons, and I rarely had a bad time doing them, tbh.

Though the DLC was underwhelming, especially those ****ing Master Trials. I paid for the expansion pass and just got "hey, here's some really hard stuff", when all I wanted was more content that could be enjoyed by hardcore players and casuals alike.

To this day I haven't finished either DLC, because what they ask of you is very unreasonable considering how much it costs and what you expect of it.
